Leading estate agent DEXTERS says buyers are drawn to houses with elegant period features after hit shows like Netflix’s Bridgerton have gained huge attention. Located within a conservation area neighbouring Buckingham Palace and the green expanses of St James’s Park, a substantial and enticing townhouse at Buckingham Place has come to the market for £4,250,000.

Following the runaway success of the show Bridgerton and recent Hollywood remakes of works by Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, DEXTERS reports that British buyers have always desired homes with original features and period character, with DEXTERS highly experienced at selling period properties across the capital.

Situated close to Buckingham Palace and within the sought-after Birdcage Walk Conservation Area, Buckingham Place is an elegant townhouse with sash windows, providing five bedrooms and a study arranged over 6 floors. Throughout the 3,416 sq. ft. property, period features include hand-painted wallpapers, marble stonework, beautiful polished floors, antique fireplaces, and a stately oak staircase leading to the upper floors.

As you enter, there is an impressive entrance hall measuring 4 meters in width, leading to a bright and spacious reception room with full height glass doors. The lower-ground floor provides a generous fully integrated modern kitchen with contemporary sleek white and grey units and worktops, and a marbled island that doubles as a breakfast bar. This space leads on to a 35 ft long dining room ideal for family occasions and hosting dinner parties. Further entertaining space can be enjoyed on the first floor in the drawing room.

The impressive principal bedroom encompasses the entire second floor, benefitting from a large bathroom and a balcony, making it a real gem in this remarkable property. The bathroom has a spa-like feel with classic marble stonework running throughout the spacious shower cubicle, freestanding bath, and flooring.

As well as a separate family bathroom, there are four further double bedrooms on both the third and fourth floors, two of which benefit from an en suite bathroom, in addition to the high ceilings, crisp white walls, and hardwood flooring indicative of this charming townhouse. The abundance of space complements a growing family well with its period charm.

Carmen-Anne Champney-Warrener of DEXTERS Westminster says: “This freehold house would make a wonderful London home, in a highly desirable location. Buckingham Place is a prestigious address with many ceremonial parades and national events being held close by”.

The area surrounding Buckingham Place is steeped in history with close proximity to some of London’s most revered landmarks. Situated near St James’ Park, the location enjoys royal, political and literary associations. A short walk through the park will take you to the famous streets of Mayfair where you can enjoy the lavish boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants.

The area is exceptionally well connected with Victoria, Westminster and St James’s Park Underground stations a short distance from the house. Victoria mainline provides convenient access to Gatwick Airport.
